Ultrabook: System responsiveness, performance, and battery life
In our tests, an Ultrabook prototype improved performance dramatically over a 2010 laptop system in every area we tested. The Ultrabook prototype reduced boot time by 74.7 percent, launched common applications up to 57.6 percent faster, provided up to 2.75 times the graphics performance, increased battery life by up to 52.6 percent, and encrypted a hard disk 2.5 times faster than the 2010 laptop we tested. It also provided a responsive touch-screen interface. The benefits of replacing your older laptop with a new Ultrabook are clear: you can get more performance and a better experience out of a sleeker, more easily portable Ultrabook system.
